I have never seen the Paul Mt. Thumbies up close. Does anyone run these? If so, do they have a four pin mounting pattern similar to the Shimano 7-speed XT and DX thumb shifters. If they do, I want to find the diameter of that 4-pin circle. XT and DX have a 4 pin diameter of about 23 mm

Here is a description.

I run 2 sets. I think the shifter mounts on a raised square if thats what you are referring too.

I run the Paul Thumbies and they are the cat's! The mounting base is as Steve described, the standard raised square to match the underside of the bar-con shifter.

These are not substutes for the old Thumbshifter clamps and will not work with the XT/DX thumbshifters.

cheers,
